Literal-Brained People Who Were Wooshed by Stupid Memes

In today's meme-ified world, it's often difficult to tell what's a joke and what's sincere. Is it an Onion headline or did that batshit crazy thing actually happen? Was that redditor joking or are they actually going to dox my entire family? Is this real life or is this just memes? Luckily, some jokes are still pretty obvious. But some people are just too literal-minded to get even the dumbest punchlines. We've got a bunch of amusing examples of times poor souls got wooshed by stupid memes and low-effort sarcasm. So you can feel a little better about yourself the next time you drop a misguided 'well, actually' in the comments.

Most satirical news publications these days have the words satire, or fake, or not real news written somewhere to make the joke totally fool-proof. Well, never underestimate a fool.

We've got a bunch of great examples of times people fell for satire and 'ate the onion,' so to speak.

28 Times Intellectually Challenged Souls Believed The Onion

The Onion has been dishing out satire since 1988. That's over thirty years. While they may have ceased to distribute an actual paper, their hilarious articles are very much in existence in the digital universe. And there are still stupid people who believe their (mostly) obvious joke headlines.

Very Dumb Things People Once Believed

Humans aren't perfect. We make mistakes. We goof. And sometimes our gullible natures get the best of us. Redditor u/Vinyl_BunBuns provided us with ample proof of this gullibility yesterday with an especially entertaining r/AskReddit thread. They asked followers of the page to share the absolute dumbest things people have believed. And while some of the examples are a testament to pranksters and impressionable child-minds, others are a wonderful reminder that kids (and adults) have absolutely incredible imaginations.
